A lip augmentation or lip lift will enhance the volume and fullness of the lips giving a more attractive contour and natural pout, also reduces fine wrinkles which may be around the mouse. In the youth the lips are plentiful, although as a result of aging process, they lose their fullness. The upper lip, specifically, appears thin and the distance from the tip of the nose to the upper lip lengthen as the lips fall down giving a non desired appearance. The vermilion border, also named the cupid's bow, becomes flat and thin.

The procedure

The lips augmentation procedure can consist in an injection technique of  natural or synthetic biocompatible material, or the patient's own fat, or in a surgical procedure to implant them.

One injection is frequently sufficient to produce the desired result, which may be temporary, depending on the material used. Injections may need to be repeated periodically. Proper placement of the injected material is important.

The surgical procedure involves insert through tiny incisions inside the corners of the mouth, a natural collagen sheet made from donated skin. Once the implant is in place, it eventually becomes integrated with the natural tissues.
